One to glug on its own if ever there was one!

Rosé d'Anjou is an AOP/appellation for pink wines from the Anjou part of the western Loire. The style, as here, is fruity and lightly sweet, made mostly from local grape Grolleau, a variety that's allowed in hardly any other regions. Rosé d'Anjou can also be sold as "nouveau," à la Beaujolais.

Rosé wine is made from red grapes but after crushing the juice stays in contact with the skin (where all the colour pigments reside) for just 1-2 days, versus 2-3 weeks for red wine production. This shorter maceration period results in a lighter, pink wine. In Europe it's illegal to make pink wine by blending red and white juice, except (oddly) in Champagne. The rosé category has been booming for the past decade.
